You've Got To Hide Your Love Away
The Beatles
Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney; released on the album "Help!".

This Dylan-influenced song (written mainly by John) is among the few Beatles 
compositions in 3/4 time (which is frequent among Bob Dylan's songs by the 
way). The song's arrangement is uncommon for an "early" Beatles song; it 
contains two acoustic guitars (one of them tuned to dropped-D), a bassline 
that contains hardly anything else but "humming" the root notes of the chords 
on the downbeats, a low-key percussion track (tambourine, maracas and snare 
drum played with drum brushes), and most notably flutes in the ending solo, 
played by professional musician John Scott. The song's verses use the same 
chord progression as John's earlier (and also Dylan-influenced) song "I'm A 
Loser".
In respect of lyrics, "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" fits well to the 
line of John's darker, more melancholic compositions of the time ("I'll Be 
Back", almost all his songs on the "Beatles For Sale" album, "Ticket To Ride" 
and "Help!").

Incorrect! This song was written and recorded in 1965, and released on "Help!" album. The film "A Hard Day's Night" is from 1964. Have you seen any of the two films? "A Hard Day's Night" featured the songs from the A side of the "A Hard Day's Night" album (except "Tell Me Why" if I remember well) plus "I Wanna Be Your Man", "Don't Bother Me" and an instrumental version of "This Boy". In addition, "You Can't Do That" and "I'll Cry Instead" was also planned, but finally they weren't put in the film.
"You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" is featured in "Help!" where they play the song in a room, John and George playing acoustic guitars, Paul playing the bass and Ringo with a tambourine. Check it out on YouTube, it should be easy to find there. Anyway, "A Hard Day's Night" was made only in black and white, and the "clip" for this song is in colour.

Say... don't you confuse this one with another song?
Here's the clip of the song from the "Help!" film:
